Users who have the Administrators role can use View Administrator to add and remove administrator users and groups.

The Administrators role is the most powerful role in View Administrator. Initially, members of the local Administrators group (BUILTIN\Administrators) on your View Connection Server host are given the Administrators role in View Administrator.


By default, the Domain Admins group is a member of the local Administrators group. If you do not want domain administrators to have full access to inventory objects and View configuration settings, you must remove the Domain Admins group from the local Administrators group.

To create an administrator, you select a user or group from your Active Directory users and groups in View Administrator and assign an administrator role.

You can remove an administrator user or group. You cannot remove the last super administrator in the system. A super administrator is an administrator that has the Administrators role on the root folder.
